Arrabida: Wine, cheese & tiles

Did you know that it’s forbidden to kill spiders in some wine cellars?

    Start the day crossing the river and enjoying the views from the 25 de Abril bridge. Enjoy the scenic drive through Arrabida Mountain, which will take us to Azeitão. This small village holds one of the oldest wineries in the world and one of the tastiest pastries too.

    Choose which pastry is your favorite by trying a couple regional sweets in a pastry shop that has been open for over a century. Afterwards, visit one of the oldest wineries in the world: Jose Maria da Fonseca. Learn everything about these wines and discover why it’s forbidden to kill spiders in the wine cellars. Delight your senses with a wine tasting and feel the caramelized taste of Moscatel in your mouth.

    After a relaxed petiscos “tapas” style lunch we will drive through the scenic sites of Arrabida Mountain and its beaches, allowing amazing photo opps. The day will follow with the visit to another small winery and wine tasting.


    If nature and wildlife is your thing, we can skip the second winery and join a boat tour to catch a glimpse of the area’s wild dolphins. This family of dolphin lives wildly in the river and can be seen pretty much every day. You can’t swim with them but will be able to take some close-ups.
